“One of the benefits available to AECB members is a one half-hour free consultation with Harrison Clark Rickerbys solicitors. Gill set it up for me and I contacted them for legal advice on a tricky situation on behalf of my client.
I spoke initially to the partner responsible for their extensive Construction and Engineering Legal Department, who took the details of the dispute and told me how the consultation would be handled and what the likely outcome would be. He then passed my details to a colleague who called me the following day and we went through the case in detail. Later that day he sent me an email setting out my options. The consultation was worthwhile and I feel I had more than my promised 30 minutes. Both of the people I spoke to were friendly and informal.
I would encourage others to take up the offer, not only to gain some useful guidance but also so that, if the company get enough interest, they will continue to make the facility available for members when they need it.”
